You will need sockets and a socket wrench, a screwdriver, jacks and jack stands, and a set of combination wrenches.

also this site should help, it's a very thorough step by step on strut removal

How do I replace rear strut and spring

Replace it as a unit. Strut, spring, strut mount all in one. It's called a quick strut. Raise car by the body not the wheel. Remove brake line (1 bolt) from strut lower. Remove 2 large bolts holding lower strut end. In the trunk 3 smaller bolts hold the strut mount (upper end) in place. DO NOT remove the single large nut at the top of the strut assembly. Wiggle the strut assembly out. Slide the new strut assembly in bolt it back in. Put wheel back on. Done.

Loud noise in rear of car. sounds like a loose 2003 ford taurus

it is quite possible that you have a bad strut mount, noticeable by rubber moving from metal, or a leaking strut, looking at the strut you would see hydraulic fluid on it. also sometimes removal and disassembly is the only way to tell. also you could check for bad sway bar links or bushings. hope this helps

Struts for 1999 ford taurus were too short...

did you unlock the struts. when you buy a new strut it is usually lock what i mean is they compress the strut for space saving.
take a pair of plyers and turn the shaft that is silver counter clock wise the strut will then unlock and extend outward

Strut removal and replacement 99 Taurus lx

unfortunatly no. i do this for a living and hate doing the front struts on these vehicles. Some you can skip that step, it all depends on the holes in the frame where the lower control arm fits. If you can pry the control arm down far enough you can get it out. But just when I think I can skip that step WHAM I get one that needs all of that stuf loosened. By the way have ypou checked the rear springs? I do a lot more rear loaded struts on thse than front strut replacement because of broken springs. Also dont forget to buy new sway bar links they will break most of the time tring to get them off.
